Attention! The rules for joining the International Legion have changed! 

Read the latest information on application, required documents and current requirements here!




After Russia launched a large-scale military invasion of Ukraine on February 24 and began striking at civilians and infrastructure from day one, the Ukrainian state called on foreigners to join our struggle for peace and democracy in Europe and around the world.

A decree of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on March 1, 2022 introduced a visa-free regime for entry into Ukraine for citizens of foreign countries who are willing to join the International Defense Legion of Ukraine, except for citizens of the aggressor state.

Foreigners who want to help Ukraine can find detailed step-by-step instructions on how to join the fair fight against the aggressor at https://ildu.com.ua/.


Today, Ukraine has a new simplified procedure for joining the International Legion. To apply for membership, a candidate must take 4 steps:
1. Download and fill out a special form on the International Legion website - https://ildu.com.ua/.
2. Scan the passport.
3. Scan documents confirming military or combat experience (if any).
4. Send the completed application form and scans of documents to [email protected].


The government has also set up a dedicated call center: For foreign volunteers already in Ukraine +380800507028;  For foreign volunteers located abroad +380443395987.
